See Gibney Dance Company perform Amy Miller’s Still and Still Moving as part of dance-mobile, a series of free outdoor events this summer. Gibney Dance’s associate artistic director Amy Miller’s newest work, Still and Still Moving, uses composer Peter Swendsen’s electroacoustic score to celebrate the active balance of individuality in the midst of community. Just as the composite of two musical notes can create a third and distinctly different overtone, this piece asks, “When you and I meet, how do we each experience the idea of ‘us’?”

Live music by North of Amarillo and lively dancing along the Hudson River. As summer kicks into gear, a Country Western Two Step Family Dance will feature the modern honky-tonk sounds of North of Amarillo. North of Amarillo’s music is an upbeat fusion of the classic country of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, mixing Nashville ballads, Western Swing, the electric Bakersfield Sound, and the Outlaw country of Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. An instructor will be on hand to first teach the audience the basic swings, slides, and turns of classic Texas Two Step, and then afterwards call out the steps as the band plays. No experience is necessary. Bring a partner or just yourself; everybody dances! All ages are welcome.

Garth Fagan’s ever-evolving dance language draws on the weight of modern dance, the speed and precision of ballet, the energy of Afro-Caribbean dance, and the rule-breaking experimentation of the post-moderns. These elements intertwine not only in the well-loved signature pieces he will be performing, but also in a commissioned work that pays homage to Geoffrey Holder’s illustrious legacy. To further celebrate his spirit, Holder’s widow, Carmen de Lavallade, will perform his moving rendition of the story of creation based on a James Weldon Johnson poem suggesting life’s graceful cycle. Harlem’s spirit-filled Ebony Ecumenical Ensemble opens the evening with their powerful gospel voices, celebrating African American musical heritage.

Featuring Abdoulaye Diabaté and Super Manden, Boodoosingh Tassa Drummers, Calpulli Mexican Dance Company, Csűrdöngölő Folk Ensemble, and Ikhlaq Hussain. This dynamic program commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Hart-Celler Act, a landmark immigration bill that forever changed the demographic makeup of America and opened doors for immigrants from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and parts of Europe. The afternoon features music and dance performance traditions from some of the New York City immigrant communities that witnessed robust growth after the bill’s passage. Abdoulaye Diabaté and Super Manden is an ensemble of master musicians led by lauded Malian-born singer Diabaté, who is steeped in the Malian griot tradition.

Founded in Tel Aviv by Lee Sher and Saar Harari in 2000 and now based in NYC, LEESAAR is “a gutsy, brainy modern-dance troupe” (NY Times) with a highly theatrical approach. Props, costumes, and pantomime punctuate their Gaga-inspired movement to form a delightful brand of avant-garde. In recent program notes, Sher and Hariri wrote, “by seeking the extreme within ourselves we hope to expand our limits for a fresh experience.” In their new piece Grass and Jackals, they find these extremes in an imagined state of nature. Set against a kaleidoscopic moiré backdrop, the work “transforms the dancers—seven women, clad in gleaming black bodysuits—into exotic, fluidly moving creatures, sexual and fierce.” (New Yorker) The program also includes a duet by their greatest influence and one of the most brilliant living choreographers, Israeli visionary OHAD NAHARIN, performed by guest dancers from his BATSHEVA DANCE COMPANY. Naharin developed the Gaga technique with Batsheva in the 90s and has continued to build and refine its vocabulary over three decades.

Tinder and Ash - Hailing from every corner of the U.S., five circus artists found themselves in the same place (the New England Center for Circus Arts) with the same vision (to create a show about personal loss and transformation using the virtuosity of circus and the artistry of theater). Through a residency with the circus-mecca TOHU in Montreal, these five diverse yet kindred-spirit artists created Tinder &amp; Ash, a highly physical journey of losing and finding themselves and each other. Ephrat Asherie Dance - Founded in 2012, Ephrat Asherie Dance has had their work presented at the Apollo Theater, the Ahmanson Theater, Jacob’s Pillow, New York Live Arts and Dixon Place, among other venues. Artistic Director, Ephrat “Bounce” Asherie is a NYFA artist and has received various grants and awards to support her work including a Mondo Cane! commission from Dixon Place, a Swing Space and Workspace residency from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and a Travel and Study grant from the Jerome Foundation. Kiebpoli and Shine - Kiebpoli Calnek (Kiebpoli) and Shawana Kemp (Shine) attended the High School for the performing Arts here in New York City. They are collaborating for the first time with this piece that will expand into a full production. They have come together to create a collage of sound and movement. Kiebpoli Calnek is an actress and aerialist. She is a graduate of CCNY, a member of the Lincoln Center Directors Lab, and of the Actors’ Equity Association. Her works have received generous funding and support from Elizabeth Streb, Astrea Foundation, Asian Arts Initiative, and The New York Foundation for the Arts. Kiebpoli is also founder and artistic director of Black*Acrobat, a social enterprise that seeks to empower fringe communities through the vertical world of aerial acrobatics with devised theatrical performances. Claire Parsons Co. - Marmalade is a dance and circus production by Swedish company Claire Parsons Co. Aimed at young children 2-6 years old, Marmalade is a delicious, sensory performance about meeting, mixing and blending. Mira and Viktor taste and feel in poetic movements and circus actions in an exquisite and visual experience where the audience is invited to join. Brooklyn United Marching Band - The Brooklyn United Marching Band is a community-based organization that serves New York City youth. As an art form, marching band combines the elements of musicianship and pageantry and allows each student to participate in an all-encompassing and life changing activity. Brooklyn United is focused on the development of youth through Academic Support, Character Development, Skills Building and Performance Opportunities. It is through these pillars that they strive to build strong, well rounded, healthy, confident and capable young people.

Alt Mode, as in: alternate modalities (working title), is a body of musical works written by composer/producer RYAT (Christina McGeehan), reconstructed into a performance that integrates dance, live electronic music, video mapping, interactive media and set design. Directed and choreographed by Kate Watson-Wallace, and composed and designed by RYAT, the work asks questions about what it means to be a woman on stage, radical female presence in a popular context and equity within the form. In this work, RYAT and Watson-Wallace continue to explore how they wear their identities, working with themes of doubleness, drag, the other, pleasure and melancholy, as sources of power. They explore ecstatic states, state-shifting, and pleasure as revolution, as ways to propose new futures. Also: ARCH Dance Company - Jennifer Archibald is the founder and Artistic Director of the Arch Dance Company and Archcore40 Summer Program. She is a graduate of The Ailey School and the Maggie Flanigan Acting Conservatory where she studied the Meisner technique. Ms. Archibald has choreographed for the Atlanta Ballet, Ailey 2, Cincinnati Ballet, and commercially for the New York Knicks City Dancers, as well as chart listed singers and actors.
